Started over a few weeks ago, I got back to my Twitter account. Despite the fact I have been a member of this service more than a year ago, frankly speaking, I didn’t use it regularly. Twittering two times a month is a kind of luxury thing for me.
So why did I finally come back to Twitter? My answer is simple: I started to use Twitter as well as other social networking service in order to expand my networking, to looking for more friends, to find out more strangers.
What is Twitter?
According to Wikipedia:
Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send “updates” (or “tweets”; text-based posts, up to 140 characters long) to the Twitter website, via short message service (e.g. on a cell phone), instant messaging, or a third-party application such as Twitterrific or Facebook.
If you’re on IM all day anyway, why not read and receive Tweets? GTalk is an excellent application for this.
But, for writing Twitter messages, I prefer using TwitterBerry that kindly always reminded me to write less than 140 characters (which GTalk can’t do).
Ah yeah, I am also putting a Twitter badge in the sidebar of this blog.
